nevisProxy using fail-safe session store with the database appliance


The use of MySQL Cluster / NDB for nevisProxy session sharing is deprecated and not recommended anymore, because it is not fully compatible with the dynamic session management of nevisProxy. If you are interested in a MySQL Cluster / NDB related configuration, refer to an old reference guide.

This chapter describes how to use the database appliance with nevisProxy or newer to create a fail-safe session store with MariaDB. This setup requires access to the latest nevisProxy Reference Guide.

  1. Start the MariaDB server on the database appliance. Secure the database by changing the root password:

    systemctl start mariadb.service
  2. Follow the instructions in the nevisProxy Reference Guide, chapter Setting up a fail-safe session store using data replication with MariaDB, to complete the database setup and the nevisProxy configuration.


Do not share the same database appliance with nevisIDM.
